OK, but who defines "legitimate"? A decade ago, much of what Snowden has

It's fine to block doxxers, spammers, and so on.
Yeah, I was struggling with that too. At the risk of being
disrespectful, I think that "legitimate" can probably be defined as

product of paranoid schizophrenia or a related disorder". I'm not sure
